Extraordinary Grants

Grant Schemes 2021

The Covid-19 grant scheme of 2020 was a great success. We received a large number of high quality applications and funding allocation was competitive. For 2021 we offer two new extraordinary grants as listed below.


Societal Relevance of Social Psychology Grant

Application deadline is May 31st, 2021.

With this grant, we would now like to introduce another topical grant round. Currently, a large number of societally relevant issues warrant further investigation and social psychology is well equipped to contribute to these matters. In this call, we are open to any topic. Examples are, but not limited to, (post-)Corona related issues, refugees and migration, political populism and extremism, global warming and sustainability, or health behavior change.

Eligibility

The call is open to full members and postgraduate members. Both senior and junior colleagues may apply, and researchers without a permanent contract may apply.

Application criteria and procedure

  • A proposal (approximately 1500 words) outlining the nature, objectives and duration of research, working plan and its intended outcomes.
  • Dissemination strategies beyond scientific publications must be documented. Collaboration with community partners is encouraged. Focus solely on student populations is discouraged.
  • The relation of the research project to social psychology should be spelled out in the proposal.
  • A letter from the heads of the institutes/departments where the research is to be conducted confirming that access to the necessary facilities will be provided.
  • A justified budget (up to a maximum of € 4.000).
  • For full members: An updated CV (including publication list). For postgraduate members: A letter of support from their supervisor or department head.
  • Grants must be applied for as a consortium, following the diversity policy of the EASP.
  • The final report needs to be submitted by December 31st, 2021. Receipts for expenses need to be provided. Along with your final report relevant photo(s) would be appreciated. The report and any photo(s) provided by the applicant will be published on the EASP website, and mentioned in the next EBSP issue.

We plan to fund 6-7 grants. The committee will consist of EC members and external committee members, taking conflicts of interest into account. The deadline May 31st, 2021. Decisions will be communicated in mid June.

Double Burden Corona Relief Grant

Application deadline is May 31st, 2021.

There is converging evidence that researchers with double burdens (e.g., homeschooling children or taking care of relatives whilst also working) are suffering proportionally more in terms of scientific productivity during the Corona pandemic. This is affecting women more than men, as it exacerbates existing disparities. This situation is especially harmful for junior scholars without tenured positions. The EASP seeks to support members in need to help them to continue disrupted research trajectories.

Eligibility

The call is open to full members and postgraduate members. Both senior and junior colleagues may apply, and researchers without a permanent contract may apply.

Application criteria and procedure

  • A proposal (approximately 1500 words) outlining the nature, objectives and duration of research, working plan and its intended outcomes.
  • A motivation letter that explains the double burden and how the application helps to alleviate this burden.
  • A letter from the heads of the institutes/departments where the research is to be conducted, confirming that access to the necessary facilities will be provided.
  • A justified budget (up to a maximum of € 4.000). Funding can only be used for research assistance and participant remuneration, or material costs. Funding cannot be used to extend existing own or PhD student contracts.
  • For full members: An updated CV (including publication list). For Phd students and Postdocs (postgraduate members): A letter of support from their supervisor or department head.
  • The final report needs to be submitted by December 31st, 2021. Receipts for expenses need to be provided. Along with your final report relevant photo(s) would be appreciated. The report and any photo(s) provided by the applicant will be published on the EASP website, and mentioned in the next EBSP issue.

We plan to fund 6-7 grants. The committee will consist of EASP executive committee members, taking conflicts of interest into account. The deadline is May 31st, 2021. Decisions will be communicated in mid June.
